Running out of games

Friday's game, in and of itself, was just 1/162nd of the long season. Added to the previous 159/162nds of the long season, Friday -- a Twins loss combined with wins by the Angels and Astros -- pretty much concluded the Twins unlikely playoff dreams.

One tenth of one percent. In terms of batting average, .010. Dean Chance was a legendarily poor hitting pitcher for the Twins and Angels back in the 1960s, and he hit better than that.

But .010 is better than .000, and the Twins will give their remarkable resilience another go today.
